Back by popular demand, Creative Carbon Scotland and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe will host two Re-use and Recycle Days at Fringe Central to conclude the 2014 Festivals season. Venues and companies that participated in the Fringe can bring used set items, props, costumes, unused publicity materials and other production materials used during the Festival Fringe to be swapped for other items or recycled.
Our past Re-use and Recycle days have been widely successful, in the quantity and quality of materials gathered as well as the monitoring the physical implications of festival events. As part of a Creative Carbon Scotland Case Study in 2011, 12 tonnes of unused print were collected. Through this monitoring, major Fringe venues were able to reduce print runs for the following year. We anticipate this year’s Re-use and Recycle Days to be equally successful and informative.
The Fringe Re-use and Recycle Days will take place 25-26 August from 11am-4pm
